Good luck with that perspective, dickhead.

You’ve picked the wrong time to preach that Australia’s cohesive society and the concept of mateship is built on nothing more substantial than wearing a flag on Australia Day.

Stick your self hate in your arse. Australia has been united by this fire ....White , Black ....whatever. If there is one positive to come from it all it’s the reassurance that we stick together. No one cares for your continuously divisive bullshit and no one is deceived by your opportunism at this time to try and wedge Australians apart.

Fuck you and your attempt to use the tragedy to create disunity. Blind and misplaced nationalism.....FFS. We rallied as a nation whilst you sit there begging for an opportunity to start up your race wars again.

You are seriously good for fucking nothing.

"It would have been better if we didn’t need such a dire catalyst for these conversations to occur, but here we are. The only question now is where do we go from here?

Do we recognise that changing a date will do no more good than changing a prime minister if we do not change the nation along with it?

Or do we continue along the path that has for so long brought devastation to Indigenous peoples, and is now bringing devastation to the rest of the nation as well?

Because if we don’t change the nation for the better then the nation, and the world, is gonna keep changing for the worse."

Yeah, no. Maybe for a brief period? In any case, this "union" will disappear as soon as everyone starts forgetting about the whole situation which will be in a month or two. And everyone will start to hate each other again if they didn't already.

If you want to blame Scott Morrison for all Australia's woes, you should wait at least a few years instead of only 9 months in the job.
The things that are impacting us are many many years in the making. Everyone will learn something and everyone can do better.

Eh? You do realise the Liberals have been in power for almost six and a half years. Scott Morrison has been a member of Cabinet the whole time.

"Trump will shit it in again and then help daughter Ivanka become the first female prez in 2024."

this seemed a ridiculous proposition three years ago when it was getting thrown around a bit, the ivanka bit that is, well the whole bit actually, but now not so much...

sadly I think bernie missed his opportunity

if he survives the left's propensity to eat it's own, this time, he is going to be proposing a pretty radical overhaul of just about everything, up against a backdrop of a now booming economy (if it holds.. )

I can't see many people taking a risk on that. combined with the neoliberal left voting for self interest, I just cannot see him getting the numbers

I can't really see anyone getting the numbers actually. every main candidate has a big block of 'haters' that's going to vote against them for a heap of reasons not matter what. bloomberg, biden, bernie, warren

biden is so compromised I cannot even believe he's still there, and trump would eat him up, big time, it'd be nothing short of cruel to put the old codger into that bear pit. bloomberg could take on trump, but there's a shitload of voters who'd be morally opposed to voting for a neoliberal billionaire. bernie would eat trump up, but self interest will win out. warren could possibly cobble a coalition together, to get the numbers, because she'll get the hilary mourner's vote, but trump would make a mockery of 'pochahontas' and her holey policy agenda

all that aside, the dems collectively are in such a dismal state, they probably will still be haplessly soul searching in five years time, and ivanka will get the gig by default (again), short of any major catastrophe....

Actually, there’s not much about Sander’s policies which Facto hasn’t belittled people for supporting when it was expressed as their opinion.

So , whilst I fully endorse Sanders, it’s very strange that so does our resident shitcunt.

Then again , as long as we all get there in the end it’s all good !

It’s a shame that Bernie is so old.

Answer.....they’re exactly the same as the opinions you’ve been desperately trying your little heart out to smear myself about.

Zen ...no judgement from me. Elle worked that thing forever ....she still is . She has to realise that it might not always work exclusively in her favour .

I’m just loving the hypocrisy from our resident self- elected moral authority.

Fucker is perpetually walking around as though his shit doesn’t stink whilst simultaneously playing the whole “ unhinged societal rebel” card .

The dumb cunt parodies himself better than anyone else who cares enough to give a fuck.

Interesting most people when pissed are more abusive and notch it up a much higher level, but the only change i can see in the way you express yourself is you are a tad more authentic, you actually gave us a slight insight into yourself, i got more out of that post about you than i have in about 50 post.

Maybe this whole meme, excessive sharing of links, attack/abuse, lack of own opinion, lack of sharing experience/story etc is actually a protective mechanism.

Interesting theory, Dr Fill. About as interesting and thus believable as any of your other erm, theories.

Here's another...

Maybe instead of being a sad, bitter, and twisted alco, and posting accordingly (like some), I, being a happy drinker and being slightly toasted, buoyed by good conversation and people, y'know, in the real world, then came on here to see?? Yep, same old, same old. But of course.

What was I expecting??

And in that moment the shtuff from the 24/7 stooged brigade (AND WHY IS THAT, doc? 24 friggin' 7! No, don't answer...please!), well, it wasn't even unintentionally funny anymore.

Well , how about this , Facto ?

You’re the only person who comes on here and uses discussions as an excuse to insult people. Rather than getting frustrated at people during a discussion and devolving into insult, you actually use the discussion as a justification for personal attacks.

And more often than not you don’t even bother with that , you just wade in and slag away without giving any thought to the conversation beyond how you can use it to frame your insults.

Perhaps you should ponder the psychological implications of that ?

A point made over and over and over again: all the shtuff posted on here is just a google away.

Unless you've truly got a goldfish memory, it ain't that hard.

Anyway, all the time on your hands, and when not surfing, thought about giving uni a go?

Serious. Seen it before. Seen the positive results. Hard work but worthy. And more oldsters there is healthy. Get in quick before universities as we know them are destroyed (well, if we keep voting in Lib governments).

I have considered it amongst other future plans. I’m definitely ready for the next chapter.

3 days ago was third anniversary for quitting work.

Unfortunately, most degrees that I’d consider don’t lead to the engaging outdoorsy careers I first imagine. They mostly consist of feeding data points into a computer model from some office. Or entering into a stifling bureaucracy. Or relocating to a city.

I’ve got an idea for a website. Anyone clued up on the process ? I was thinking along the lines of suggesting my idea and then going surfing, whilst my partner developed it. They’d occasionally show me their work and I’d okay / pooh pooh their work to date .

Who’s keen?
